A recent war game conducted by the US and Japan simulated a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. The scenario showed that the US and Japan could successfully push back the Chinese military, but at a high cost in terms of human lives and damage to infrastructure.


Raul Dancel writing in the Straits Times, makes the following points:
  • He predicts heavy losses in just two weeks of fighting.
  • Japan declares Chinese attacks an "existential threat".
  • US and Taiwanese 2024 elections could give China a pretext to invade Taiwan.
  • The US Air Force's chief of staff said a war with China over Taiwan was not 'imminent or inevitable'.
